Robonaut Legs In Motion 5 720p
NASA has developed zero gravity legs for use by Robonaut 2 (R2) on the International Space Station. With legs, R2 will have mobility and be able to help with mundane or repetitive tasks so as to free up crew time for more critical items and scientific research. NASA engineers have completed building the flight unit and R2 will be receiving them early next year. The new legs are designed for work both inside and outside the station, but upgrades to R2's upper body will be necessary before any work outside the space station can take place.
